Former FBI agent shares Mar-a-Lago insights with Nebraska law students

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – After getting both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Nebraska, Greg Stejskal spent 31 years in the FBI as a special agent.

He came back to Lincoln on Monday to talk about his career with the community and law students.

“It’s great,” he said. “I feel honored to have the opportunity to come back and address the students.”

The College of Law is in the middle of a series of events highlighting the importance of democracy, as well as the challenges facing it.

“One of the many things that are problematic for the rule of law right now is how much misinformation there is,” law professor Eric Berger said. “He’s a great person to talk to our community about how these things really work.”

One FBI-related topic on the minds of many is the search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in August.

Stejskal said one of the main misconceptions is the idea that agents placed evidence in the home to incriminate Trump.

He said agents “just don’t do that.”

“We’re in search of the truth, not trying to make political gains or try to skew the facts in one direction or another,” Stejskal said.

As an agent, Stejskal worked to bring in the Oklahoma City bomber in 1995, as well as the notorious Unabomber, who ran free for more than a decade.

Now he spends his time writing about the procedures and processes the FBI goes through to obtain search warrants.
